This video showcases the results from our facial animation research.

The motion in this animation was created using our novel techniques for automatically synthesizing speech-driven expressive facial animation. The input of our system is a spoken utterance and a set of emotional tags. These emotional tags can be specified by a user or extracted from the speech signal using a classifier. Its output is a realistic facial animation that is synched to the input audio and conveys faithfully the specified emotions. This approach relies on a database of high-fidelity recorded facial motion capture data. This database includes speech-related motions with variations across multiple emotions.
